Allow B2Bi to run as a service account without local administrator privileges or need to disable UAC

The following article outlines the steps to run Sterling B2Bi as a service account:

Typically, the reason to run a process as a service account is for security reasons. Compromise or exploitation of the process is limited to the user account that the service is running as. Requiring the service account to have local administrator privileges means that compromise or exploitation of local resources is not limited.

Additionally the steps in above article require UAC to be disabled. Typically this is not required by running other applications as a service account, and is typically against client's security policy and industry regulation.

Please adjust the application so that it can run as a service account, without the need to give the service account local admin privileges, or require the need to disable UAC.
